3 Perks of Installing Motorized Shades in Your Space

The amount of light in a room makes just as much of a statement as the window treatments themselves. But what if your windows are wide, tall or otherwise difficult to reach? You may be uneasy about the effort required to wipe down or readjust your shades.

At Louver Shop of Pittsburgh, function and stylishness aren’t mutually exclusive. Many of our custom shades can be motorized. These shades combine quality design with precise and convenient control. As an extra bonus, you can control your shades with your phone or integrate them with a compatible smart home system.

If you’re looking into updating your home’s window treatments, here are some reasons why adding motorization is a great idea!

Why Motorized Shades Are Worth It


Motorized shades are an exceptional addition to your house, but they are more expensive than shades with manual operating systems. Although their benefits more than pay for themselves with ease and up-to-date technology.

When weighing the perks of motorized shades, consider the following:

1. Convenience

It can be tedious and time-consuming to raise and lower your shades. A want for privacy or softer sunlight demands easy access. With PowerView®, you’ll benefit from simple daily control. You can raise or lower your blinds with the touch of a button or via your smartphone.

Pairing motorized control with our sheer shades is a good way to enhance the control you have over sunlight.

2. Smart Home Integration

Our motorized shades are compatible with a large range of smart home systems, including Amazon Alexa, Siri® on your Apple device or Google Assistant. You can also adjust them with the PowerView App whether you’re at home or away.

Schedules can be separately programmed for multiple rooms and windows. For example, you can set your bedroom shades to lower as the sun disappears. Move them through remote control or voice activation with a compatible system. Wherever you are, privacy and convenience are never out of reach.

Smart shades are a fantastic option for our energy-efficient honeycomb shades. Custom schedules will help maintain your indoor temperature. When you’re at work or on vacation, you can move all your window treatments remotely. This may lead to lower monthly energy costs!

3. Fashionable and Functional


Window treatments with hand controls struggle to produce the clean lines or sophistication you’re hoping for. Motorized shades provide convenient functionality without sacrificing luxurious design. What’s more, they can make altering the aesthetic of a space quick and straightforward. Go from breezy to cozy in just a few moments.

Motorized control is a valuable addition for roller and solar shades. Their modern design blends well with lots of different kinds of decor. With lots of fabrics to work with, you’ll be able to vary your level of privacy and natural light.
